Orcas Island, WA

Moran State Park Learning Center

Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission and Patano Studio are working together to design a new Learning Center on top of Mount Constitution at Moran State Park on Orcas Island. From the highest point in the San Juan Islands, the new Learning Center will host the Friends of Moran State Park, a retail area, interpretive exhibits and new restrooms adjacent to the current parking area. The design consists of two phases, the initial phase to be constructed in 2016/17 will provide three new ADA compliant restrooms and house the existing water system. The second phase will consist of the Learning Center with Interpretive content. The second phase is currently only a concept – a complete design process will occur once funding is realized.
